Business modelAny private individual or corporate entity can submit a project with corresponding funding requirements to c-crowd.com.
To submit a project, the project initiator must first of all register with c-crowd.com (free of charge). He or she can then submit the project, together with a pre-specified catalogue of information and documents. After receiving the information, c-crowd will assess its plausibility and check it against the c-crowd admission criteria. Once the c-crowd AG board of directors has unanimously approved the project, it will be uploaded on the c-crowd.com platform. This mechanism ensures that the potential funder's (investor's) requirement for a professionally prepared and simply structured financing process is met.
To make the decision to invest or donate as easy and efficient as possible, c-crowd.com uses standardised processes. The investment process is structured in a sleek, simple and efficient way. Furthermore, c-crowd provides the project initiator with samples of the necessary legal documents (e.g., share issue prospectus, subscription form and shareholders' agreement) at no extra cost.
c-crowd does not accept any investments or donations itself. Rather, it puts the capital provider and the project initiator in touch with each other directly. In the case of Company and Campus projects, c-crowd will charge the project initiator a percentage of the funds which have been successfully provided. For projects with a charitable purpose, c-crowd charges a one-off activation fee.
